Product design, manufacturing, and expert installation are words we would use to describe Distinctive Metal Roofing. When the job was completed, we could not have been more pleased with all three. The professionalism and information provided by Gary Hromi and Bruce Hicks at the beginning of our search for a company that would provide a product we could be proud of, and provide the years of service we were looking for were certainly what we received. Both went beyond providing personal attention to detail to make the job move forward. Words are difficult to find to describe the professionalism, quality of work, and timeliness the crew provided when installing our roof. Their work ethics and craftsmanship were phenomenal. Thanks for an outstanding job from everyone involved.

From start to finish, Distinctive Metal Roofing was a pleasure to work with. Our house is on a hill and exposed to high winds. Even though our existing roof was less than ten years old, we had to repair or replace some of the asphalt shingles due to wind damage on several occasions. I had done a lot of research on metal roofing and was drawn to its ability to resist wind damage and its longevity. Bruce was very knowledgable and didn't try to oversell his services/products. He was flexible and willing to meet with us on several occasions. He returned all of my calls within 24 hours (usually within an hour or two). He explained the product (Arrowline Enhanced Slate) and the installation process to a tee. There were zero surprises. As for the all-Amish crew, they were fantastic. Will, the foreman, and the rest of the team did an outstanding job. They arrived early each morning, right on time, and worked until dark. They cleaned up debris each evening and maintained a tidy job site. Without a doubt, they take much pride in their workmanship. The new roof looks great. Everyone that has seen the roof, or encountered the crew while they were here, had nothing but positive things to say. Bottom line, I would highly recommend Distinctive Metal Roofing to anyone thinking about installing a new roof.

Bruce and his crew of highly skilled workers are simply the best. Every aspect of the execution of their installation was flawless and the job I had for them was not easy in any regard. A very complex, severely neglected Victorian roof was no match for them and they easily adapted to a number of changes on the fly. I was amazed at the conditions the crew persevered through to complete the project. Laying down a new roof in February is no joke. Nothing stopped these guys. Bruce is a great ambassador for the products he sells and is very honest about what you can expect from your choices. He was able to field every question I had about the product and installation process no matter how technical, and believe me: I ask a lot of questions. Bottom line: If you're going to get a metal roof, save yourself the hassle and hire Distinctive Metal Roofing.
This company was very professional, very honest, prompt, and was above our expectations. The work crew did a fantastic job, and did an excellent job with clean up (during and after the project), and were very friendly. We would highly recommend this company to anyone looking into this type of project for their home or business. We are highly satisfied with the work they did on our home, it was worth every penny spent. We have the best looking roof in our neighborhood, and it will outlast every single one of them! The owner was also the most professional person I have ever worked with. He was on site as the work was being completed, and upon completion to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. Great job !!!

Bruce and Will are an exceptional team. They have the utmost respect for each other and it shows in the quality of their crew and the quality of their work. From the beginning of the project when Bruce explained about the roofing process he explained to the point as a regular homeowner I would understand. He provided written material to explain the process and answered every email with answers to my questions after it all sunk in. This is the way a construction job should go. I contracted, they showed up on time when they said they would and did a good job and completed it above and beyond. The job site was kept clean by the crew. Even when problems arose (rotted decking was discovered) I was kept aprised of the situation and it was easily and quickly handled. It was actually a fun process (believe it or not) watching the crew work together like a well oiled machine I would absolutely recommend this company and plan to tell everyone I know what a great metal roof I own. (Second review 3 years later: I did a lot of research when deciding on a metal roof. Bruce went out of his way to teach me and responded promptly to my questions. We agreed on a style and a date was set. Bruce was on time and his workers cleaned up every night. He treated his workers well and they responded with awesome work. It still years later is the best decision I made. I used white standing seam to reflect the sunlight and it has decreased the heat on the 2nd floor immeasurably!)

We highly recommend Distinctive Metal Roofing and Gary Hromi for a wonderful experience from start to finish. The communication was spectacular and you were always kept up to date on what to expect. Gary was here the entire time while his crew was working, cleaning up and making sure things were under control! The crew was very skilled, experienced, and so polite! Our new metal shingle roof has exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend this company and Gary Hromi!!!

Bruce Hicks of Distintive Metal Roofing is a true professional who took us thru the entire process with no pressure and immense patience. His product knowledge is great and his ability to scope the job is fantastic. Based on the high quality and craftsmanship we received the price we paid was well worth it! The roof is simply fantastic, people are actually stopping in front of the house and standing for several minutes looking. I've seen cars circle the block. Will the foreman, and his construction team were true professionals and craftsmen. We are so happy with our roof, we loved our house before now we love it even more.

We decided to purchase a metal roof. We did our research, and discovered Distinctive Metal Roofing. We spoke with Bruce Hicks (the congenial and knowledgeable owner) and found just what we wanted. After successfully making his case before the Shaker Heights Architectural Board of Review, Bruce and his exceptionally capable work crew installed a very attractive metal slate-look roof on our home. The crew consisted of first-quality Amish craftsmen. They arrived on time, worked diligently for two days (without music blaring or other annoyances), and cleaned up meticulously when they were finished.

Provider arrived at our home with samples of various metal shingles so we could look at the colors and feel the quality of the shingles. He also allowed us to keep two of the samples so we could decide which color we wanted. He was VERY knowledgeable of the product and made recommendations to us about the underlayment. He was not pushy as we could tell he truly believed in this roofing material. He presented many photos of homes his company re-roofed and showed us photos of his own home with a Distinctive Metal Roof which said volumes of the product!! They were very well on time with the delivery of the products, including the dumpster for the tear off of our old roof. It was delivered during a holiday week to! The crew arrived punctually at 7:30 am ready to get started. They were very courteous and ready to work. They had the old roof removed and most of the new roof installed on the first day. The second day they arrived in the rain, but it didn't slow them down. They completed our roof in two days. We were so pleased with them. The salesman was at our residence when the job was completed and walked around the residence with us to ensure we were pleased with the job, and the clean up. Which of course we were!! The crew was very thorough with their work. The dumpster was removed from our property in a very timely manner as well.
